Wet Pants

Posted by Lorraine Serra on June 15, 2011 at 11:11 AM

Just had to share this one with you.  Forwarded to me by email from a dear friend today, I don't know who the author is, or even if it is a true story, but it is a wonderful picture of grace!  Read on and send your friends here to read it, too!  Love and prayers for each reader today.  Be blessed!!



 

Come with me   

to a third grade classroom..... There is a   

nine-year-old kid sitting at his desk and all of   

a sudden, there is a puddle between his feet and   

the front of his pants are wet. He thinks his   

heart is going to stop because he cannot   

possibly imagine how this has happened.. It's   

never happened before, and he knows that when   

the boys find out he will never hear the end of   

it. When the girls find out, they'll never speak   

to him again as long as he   

lives.


 

 

 

 

 

The boy   

believes his heart is going to stop; he puts his   

head down and prays this prayer, 'Dear God, this   

is an emergency! I need help now! Five minutes   

from now I'm dead   

meat.'


 

 

 

 

 

He looks up   

from his prayer and here comes the teacher with   

a look in her eyes that says he has been   

discovered.


 

 

 

 

 

As the   

teacher is walking toward him, a class mate   

named Susie is carrying a goldfish bowl that is   

filled with water. Susie trips in front of the   

teacher and inexplicably dumps the bowl of water   

in the boy's   

lap.


 

 

 

 

 

The boy   

pretends to be angry, but all the while is   

saying to himself, 'Thank you, Lord! Thank you,   

Lord!'


 

 

 

 

 

Now all of a   

sudden, instead of being the object of ridicule,   

the boy is the object of sympathy. The teacher   

rushes him downstairs and gives him gym shorts   

to put on while his pants dry out..... All the other   

children are on their hands and knees cleaning   

up around his desk. The sympathy is wonderful.   

But as life would have it, the ridicule that   

should have been his has been transferred to   

someone else -   

Susie.


 

 

 

 

 

She tries to   

help, but they tell her to get out. You've done   

enough, you   

klutz!'


 

 

 

 

 

Finally, at   

the end of the day, as they are waiting for the   

bus, the boy walks over to Susie and whispers,   

'You did that on purpose, didn't you?'

Susie  whispers back, 'I wet my pants once   

too.'


 

 

 

 

 

May God help   

us see the opportunities that are always around   

us to do good..


 

 

 

 

 

Remember.....Just going to   

church doesn't make you a Christian any more   

than standing in your garage makes you a   

car.


 

 

 

 

 

Each and   

everyone one of us is going through tough times   

right now, but God will bless you   

in a way that only He can if you pray and trust. Keep the faith.

Oh, Linda! I'm so sorry about your arm! Yes, indeed, 6 weeks will certainly make you slow down......but I know you will make the best of it. I'll be praying for your client. Whatever you have ministered to her, I"m certain God will nurture and make it grow. You and I.....new ministries, new joy, great and awesome God changing lives. Praise Him. You rest up, and I'll catch up with you soon. Love you!

what a sweet story of how we can extend grace to each other as we glorify God by putting others above ourselves.
Lorraine, you will be so blessed as you serve God in the prison ministry. You will gain so much new understanding about our human condition... I will pray for you and John.
My "parenting client" at the pregnancy center is about to give birth! Not sure how much influence I had, though it was a joy for me. It requires so much patience for s l o w growth. God knows.
I broke my right arm and I'm in a cast for 6 weeks! Glad I can type now. ...more humbling!! Blessings, Linda
